China mulls strengthening management of border travel, indicating the regions where many tourists have taken part in gambling may have their border tourism activities suspended or even terminated.

The announcement came as five departments, including Ministry of Culture and Tourism and Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that they are collecting feedback for a revised draft policy on border tourism. 

The draft encourages border areas to create distinctive tourism destinations, clarifies that border travelers can flexibly choose entry and exit ports, and simplifies past documents regarding border tourism, according to the announcement on the official website of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

It also clarified that the border agencies must not arrange tourism activities that involve obscenity, gambling or drug trafficking.
